Default 2D slices from a 3D model

Hi, looking great! I believe that Autodesk have a free piece of software to do what you want. Slicer for Fusion 360 (also free). I don't know if it works on 3D models created with other software - not really my area of expertise:

This is obviously a long overdue update. I was presented an opportunity to have nose and tail portions of the car 3d printed... yes, 3d printing part of the body buck! I bet this is the first time you will read that. While 3d printing full scale may not be an economic solution for building a whole car, there are a lot of opportunities to print detailed parts or molds (very quickly). I didn't even consider this earlier on in the build, because I just didn't know printing in this scale was possible. The massivit printer prints something like 1foot per hour for something of this size- it's nuts, and puts my rinky dink desktop 3d printer to shame.

While I could use these printed parts to build sheet metal panels directly from, I will be bodyworking and painting these printed pieces and pulling splash molds from them and will build the sheet metal from a fiberglass part instead.

After slicing to my liking, preparation of the model and printing was done by the sign connection in Gastonia, NC on their Massivit 3d printer and anyone stateside who's serious about printing larger parts should definitely be talking with them.

I have been working on the car here and there, removing undercoating, seam sealer, patching holes, seam welding etc. I'm hoping to get all the bare metal prepped and shot with epoxy primer soon. Recently I completed the ford 8.8/coilover conversion and here are some photos of that.

You do know that for most of us, your posts are masochistic: We love seeing them but they hurt because we do not have the skills to do the same.

Don't let that stop you. Keep spanking.

275NART - Great workmanship as always.

How are you planning to create the body buck?

I know you had some pieces 3D printed.

But are you planning to start with a body shell from a kit, or scratch build it?

Either way, good luck, Paul.

Hey Paul,

Thanks for asking. The plan is to build a wireframe buck and shape the panels in aluminum. I'm getting close to body buck building, I've been spending a lot of time chipping off undercoating and preparing everything for a coat of epoxy primer in preparation.

Amazing project! Wish we could do this kind of thing in the UK and drive on the roads with it.

Looking forward to the next update!
